Not Something You See Every Day

Yes, these are sheep! They are Soays and there is a small flock here in Kentucky :-). 


This is Princess and her baby, Nova. 


Tiny, deer-like sheep. 


"I've got an itch I just almost can't reach!"


"Here, baby, I'll get if for you."

Princess was a bottle lamb. A very spoiled bottle lamb ;-).  This is her first baby.  In case you were wondering if a bottle lamb could turn around and be a good mother herself.



Using the ole Cheerios method ;-).


"Cheerios?"


The ram.  From the other side of fence ;-).

For more fun stories and pictures of Nova and Neo (the newest baby)...

Nova has a pretty little face and that ram is something else. Very nice.

I have a friend that used to have a flock of Soays. Like many primitive breeds, they were almost wild animals. She brought a few to fair one year; showing them was quite the adventure. I helped roo one of the yearling ewes. Even that was almost more than the poor little thing could stand. And they are tiny!

Yay! I love the shot of Nova watching her mama eat cereal. She's not brave enough to challenge Princess yet, but she steals her Aunties' crunchies every night. :-)
